AbstractBucket-handle meniscal tears are defined as vertical longitudinal tears of the meniscus with displacement of the torn inner fragment toward the intercondylar notch region. It is most commonly encountered in medial meniscus. Management of bucket handle tears is important to preserve knee function & preserving the meniscus will limit future osteoarthrosis. A series of 20 cases of bucket handle medial meniscus tears were treated by Arthroscopic repair: All-inside technique and were followed up regularly till 6months and evaluated using Lysholm Knee Scoring Scale. Most patients had Excellent score at 6th month follow-up. Our study suggests Arthroscopic repair: All-inside technique is an effective management of medial meniscus bucket handle tears.
